Dimitra Georgaraki

Head of the Corporate Department

Onassis once said that: “In order to succeed in business, you must make others see things as you see them.” So, here we are, to assist you from the beginning in your business venture but also to provide new ideas and guidance, which will broaden your business horizons and at the same time will reduce any risks in Greece.

Corporate English Speaking Lawyers in Greece

Our team of corporate English Speaking Lawyers will assist you from the beginning by providing the appropriate business plan in order to achieve 100% of your initial business scope, by setting up the right form of business. We can also prepare all the required internal operational agreements, as well as to manage the whole process of mergers and acquisitions, but also by representing the clients as best as possible at various levels of their business interests.

Why to Open Business in Greece?

Greece is one of the countries that is currently receiving a huge inflow of investments because it has currently managed to incorporate significant changes both for the formation of companies, but also for the acceleration of internal business processes.

Thus, a new special form of Societe Anonyme has been established, “Private Company”, which can be established very soon and only electronically, having only € 1 as required capital.

However, apart from the establishment of companies, almost all transactions of entrepreneurs and companies with the local competent chambers, tax authorities and insurance organizations have been smoothed and changed to electronic means, making the whole process much easier, more attractive. and not at all time consuming.

On this new platform, we are all very familiar with these new services and we are available 24/7 to support and assist our clients in their business plans.

How can we help you ?

Corporate Services in Greece

Company Formation

We can assist clients on selecting the most appropriate company structures and set-up companies, branches and joint ventures. Our support can range from drafting shareholders’ agreements and Articles of Association, to issuing and obtaining tax registration numbers for overseas founders/shareholders and completing the necessary process for opening bank accounts.The main purpose is to support a company wherever it is located in the world, in case it wishes to establish a subsidiary or branch in Greece. Also, we can provide tax representative services for companies only for VAT purposes (without the need for a permanent establishment in Greece).

Appoint of Representatives in Greece

The existence of a tax representative in Greece is a necessary condition for the correct formation of a corporate structure. For this reason, it is necessary for the tax representative to have acquired a Greek Tax Registration Number. Our team can assist you in this, by providing all the necessary checks and preparing all the required documents and applications in order to complete the process quickly and efficiently, always being in full contact with you.

Mergers & Acquisitions/Due diligence:

The actual situation of a company is one of the biggest challenges that a potential investor may face. Especially in the current era, where the largest volume of investments is concentrated in Greece, the team of Lexidy can conduct a thorough due diligence investigation on behalf of our clients, which includes the detailed diagnosis, examination, research, analysis, review of all those elements of the company, which are deemed as necessary in case of entry of investors, full acquisition,or merger, but also in case that one of the partners or shareholders wishes to conduct a detailed audit of the participating company.

We prepare and successfully negotiate a wide range of contractual relationships for business clients, including asset and stock purchase agreements, distribution and licensing agreements, stockholders’ agreements, franchising agreements, and strategic alliances or joint ventures.

Banking

We offer comprehensive services, ranging from the establishment of banking activities and qualifying holding acquisitions and banking M&A and compliance, to traditional banking, financing and restructuring of loans.

Our clients include Greek and foreign commercial and investment banking institutions, institutional lenders and investors, as well as private equity funds, hedge funds, strategic buyers, borrowers and issuers of securities.

AUTONOMO REGISTRATION

Autonomo status is the Spanish equivalent of self-employed or freelance and also covers people operating (unincorporated) small businesses. There are no requirements to show any business plans, capital or prove any professional qualifications. Save time and money by registering as an autonomo with our team of English speaking Lawyers in Spain.

OPEN A BANK ACCOUNT

Empower our English Speaking Lawyers in Madrid & Barcelona to represent you in the opening of a bank account in your name, at a chosen Spanish first line bank. The Power of Attorney can be signed in Spain but also at a notary’s office in your country. It contains advanced provisions to protect you. You choose when it takes effect and which powers/authorities to grant.

SUBSIDIARY OFFICE

We will act on your behalf to set up a subsidiary office of your company in Spain. Our services also include advice about the most suitable legal structure for your business, taking into account details such as the size of the company, the number of shareholders, the purpose of the business, and tax implications.

BRANCH OFFICE SETUP

We will help you launch a Branch Office of your business without you travelling to Spain. A branch office does not have its own legal identity, does not require a minimum share capital, and acts as an agent within the limit of the powers granted by the parent company. Setup a branch office efficiently with Lexidy.

REGISTER TRADEMARK

A trademark is a sign that distinguishes one brand from another. Trademarks can be words, logos, devices or other distinctive features – or a combination of these. The trademark registration process takes from 5 to 10 months to complete if no oppositions are filed against your application.

COMPANY WIND-UP

Voluntarily striking off or closing a company in Spain, for whatever reason, can be daunting if you are unaware of the potential steps or pitfalls involved. That is why we strongly encourage our clients to get early legal advice to avoid a later headache.  Our Spanish Lawyers will guide through the process to have your company liquidated cleanly without leaving a trail of civil and/or possibly criminal liabilities behind you.

DEBT COLLECTION

Collecting overdue debts without legal help can be a very time-consuming, stressful and frustrating process. The day-to-day running of your business should be your focus, not chasing debtors. Lexidy can help you reclaim the money you are owed – efficiently, legally, and conveniently.

Our corporate and commercial team is pleased to have the opportunity to serve diverse client needs, on the relative issues of each corporate field

Amazing experience! Mónica Isern López for immigration and residency, her communication was excellent, she responded to every email in a timely manner, spoke to me on the phone whenever I requested, and provided extremely clear instructions. I was very impressed that if Monica was out of office, someone else would respond that had knowledge of my specific situation.The information she provided was always accurate and she followed through with every document and appointment laid out in the contract. If I had a question, she found the answer and provided supporting documentation. Even though it was a long process due to the pandemic, I felt confident with her help and received a favorable resolution without any issues.

Tuve una mala experiencia con otro despacho. Un amigo me recomendó a David Planes y el proceso fue completamente diferente, David escuchó mi caso y aclaró todas mis dudas con mucha paciencia, hizo que el proceso fuera muy sencillo y me acompañó todo el tiempo.

Had a wonderful experience talking with Lidiane Carvalho from Lexidy who helped me understand the immigration process from the US to Portugal. She was friendly throughout all of our communication and was very clear on what I needed to do and in what timeline in order to immigrate. I would highly recommend their legal services. 🙂

I recently spoke with David about some clarification I needed about the validity of my TIE card. David is very knowledgeable, polite and friendly and gave me the information I needed to be able to plan ahead and make some important decisions. Jose has also been a great help with a fairly complicated tax situation and I'll be coming back to Lexidy again for more advice and guidance when I need it. Thanks guys!
